Things to Know

Residential Program

The Shoulder Residential Program is open to men ONLY


Program Overview


The primary focus of The Shoulder's residential program is recovery from drug/alcohol abuse. Shoulder residents are required to work as part of the recovery process. We believe that being a working, contributing member of society helps our clients better assimilate to life after treatment and develops a sense of self and purpose.


While residing at The Shoulder, clients work with our Master's level counselors to develop a treatment plan designed to meet their individual needs. Clients are also required to participate in various treatment activities including: educational and process groups, 12-step meetings, spirituality groups, substance education meetings, and individual and family counseling sessions.
